"No experiment can be more interesting than that we are now trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press. It is, therefore, the first shut up by those who fear the investigation of their actions." --Thomas Jefferson to John Tyler, 1804.

new building

Anyone who hasn’t been to downtown Boise in a while will notice something new: That hole in the ground at Main and 8th, which has been a hole in the ground for many years, is now being filled. Something like five stories (the basic skeleton thereof at least) is filling the spot, and an actual new building is only, it seems, months away. (You can see it here in the background, toward the center, still partly covered with plastic layers, under the crane.)

Also, there’s a good deal of work a few blocks from there on the “Jack’s Place” development, between the connector.
